Hey,  iv been experiencing some bad stomach issues recently, cramps, bloating, gas constipation dirroeah ect 

Il get bad cramps and dirroeah after i have eaten, like sometimes 10 mins after eating! And i thought it was soya cos soya gave me a bad stomach once before years ago and sent me to the loo rather quickly... so i cut it out of my diet for a week and didnt see any improvements,  but i did notice that all i was eating did contain gluten and i had previously last year had an accident of let's just say messing myself after just two slices of seeded bread ... that's not easy for me to admit and is rather embarrassing! I have ibs too btw.

I spoke to a nurse at my drs surgery who suggested cutting out both of them for a week or two and then introducing them both one at a time to see if its one or the other or both, and that eating such things as rice while my gut calms down is good. Only i have had three apples and a lot of rice and my stomach is hurting a LOT and after my rice today i ended up on the toilet with stomach pains after just 10 mins of eating it! Is this down to cross contamination in the rice? Or possible soyabean oil wax on the apples? Please help im in pain and dont even know if introducing soya and gluten later on to know for sure is even worth it right now, iv been like this all month and im sick of it,  i dont even want the test cos iv heard you have to eat gluten for it to even show up and right now i can't take that xxxx

You could have SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth) which you are feeding with the high carb diet of rice and fruit. You can get tested for this medically but a first step might be to revert to a very low carb, higher fat, higher protein diet (lots of meat, eggs, and nuts) and see if you don't feel better. What carbs you do take in should be of the complex variety that don't break down into sugars easily.

Welcome to the forum!

The only way for you to know for sure if you have celiac disease is to get a blood test for it, and you need to be eating gluten daily for at least 6 weeks beforehand:

 If your symptoms are too severe to allow you to do this you may consider just going gluten-free for a few months to see if the diet helps. It sounds like you are, at the very least, gluten sensitive. You need to be 100% gluten-free and it can hide in lots of ingredients and foods:

Hi Shortstuff123,

If you have decided to go gluten-free permanently that's fine.  The only treatment for celiac disease is the gluten-free diet.

I am not surprised to hear you have symptoms.  Celiac disease damage does not heal instantly.  It takes time for the immune system to settle down and stop attacking your gut/body.  Sometimes it takes months actually.  Healing from celiac damage can also take time perhaps a couple years.

If you can't stick to the gluten-free diet without a doctor saying to do it, you may want to go ahead and get diagnosed.  We are all individuals and what works for one may not work for another.

Many times people new to the gluten-free diet have trouble with dairy for a few months.   Oats can be a problem also.  Try to stick to meats, veggies, eggs, nuts and some fruit at first.  Processed foods are risky and can cause GI trouble.

I am glad there are short people in the world to keep things down there under control. :)

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
